"#truelife twitter confessions: y'all can't hold this against me but I was in special ed 4 two yrs! It was embarrassing but fun! Lol... At first I was motivated 2 get out of the class but then I was really easy & if u acted lost enough the teacher did your work 4 u! Lol... It was fun cuz we only did actual school work half the day. Cuz my classmates that really needed help had a very short attention span! Lol... What made me think of this is that no matter what label I was put in I always persevered! I graduated from jucco & Michigan State University" -Rashad Evans

MMA JOURNALISTS ON WHAT IS APPARENTLY MMA'S "MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD".
"Nate Marquardt just gave the first full, honest explanation of his positive test after the Salaverry test. A very, very pleasant surprise... Marquardt story in short: approved for hormone replacement, didn’t keep his T:E ratio in order, warned to do so, wasn’t cleared to fight" -Jordan Breen
"People acting like this seems legit know absolutely nothing, not a damn thing, about how TRT works in the hands of a proper endocrinologist... I hope folks realize how beyond incompetent your endocrinologist has to be to mess up your T:E ratio... Oh, it absolutely is Marquardt’s job to ensure he meets all licensing requirements. It’s his job and his job alone..." -Tomas Rios
"There are gaping holes in Marquardt’s story, but at least he and Lex McMahon are prepared to handle this story in a professional manner. HRT/TRT is beyond rare in young people. World-class athletes with 12 years of training camps behind them? Hahahahaha... Can’t wait until someone finds out who Marquardt’s doctor is. I suspect there’s a reason why the doctor has yet to be named. Marquardt’s basically saying his doctor’s solution to the T:E ratio problem was to give it the old college try. What a pro. Marquardt’s doctor was using treatment protocols not accepted by the USADA. Where’s my smoking gun of quackery?" - Tomas Rios
"My question is why would Marquardt be allowed to fight in NJ if his levels were high and why wasn’t Dan Miller notified? Nate still looks bad but NJSACB looks even worse. If Nate is right about this how can you let someone fight with elevated levels of test?" -Greg Savage
"Th boys are ready @joerogan with the signature pouty face and @MFG16 is letting his hair down. LOL" -Arianny Celeste
"Two months to my next challenge,full strength n focused on my training, counting on Your support." -Anderson Silva
"Olha a pose do novo Juri rsr" -Anderson Silva

"Budlight! What! What!! :)" -Arianny Celeste
"Backstage w@matrix31 apparently he's a big deal! ;) #Champion!!" -Arianny Celeste, with a guy who beat the NBA team I was rooting for. #IDontCareIfItsCoolToHateOnThem
"With my lovelies @ariannyceleste @brittneypalmer" -Chandella Powell
